Celtics vs. Nets

The Nets won by 11 points in game one, walking over the Celtics with ease having put their foot on the accelerator after the half.

Boston Celtics

Without Jaylen Brown it's made life very difficult for Jayson Tatum, who has now had to take more of the burden on himself. He was the top scorer in game one and he'll need to go above and beyond if Boston have any chance on Tuesday night.

Marcus Smart and Kemba Walker combined for 32 points last week but the other players will need to contrbute more if the Celtics are to stand any chance of winning this.

Brooklyn Nets

The Celtics only had one player score 20+ points in the first game of the series. Scoring isn't an issue for Brooklyn though, with Harden (21), Kyrie (29) and Durant (32) leading the scoring for the Nets. When the big three is so dominant they don't need a huge amount from the rest of the rotation but Joe Harris performed well adding 10 points and he can be another key part of the team here.

Celtics vs. Nets Prediction

When I look at these two teams, and especially the Celtics, without Brown, then there's only one way that I see this game going, and that's to Brooklyn. It's going to be very difficult for Boston to avoid the sweep against this offense, who have so may ways to put you to the sword. We'll need to see a massive improvement from the Celtics if they're to win here and in total honesty, I just don't see it happening. We'll take the Nets to cover again.
